Western New York Native Invited To Buffalo Bills Rookie Camp
A Western New York native will have a chance to live out his dream of playing for his hometown team.
Cole Jenkins who was a long snapper for the Buffalo State Bengals announced on his Twitter that he has been invited to the Buffalo Bills rookie camp.
It is rare and quite the honor for a Division III player to be invited to the bowl game, but over the past two seasons, Cole has caught the eye of several NFL scouts, some of who have visited the Buff State campus in-person to see Cole snap the ball.
Jenkins who is a long snapper will have some work to do to make the Bills roster. Currently, the Bills have Reid Ferguson signed through the 2024 season. Ferguson has been with the Bills since 2016 and has played in 81 career games. He was part of the practice squad in 2016 before making the active roster in 2017. He signed a 3-year deal in 2019 worth $4 million dollars with a $675,000 signing bonus.
